CAST: Peter Kowitz, Anne Tenney, Glen Hazeldine, Mark Lee, Erica Lovell and Tom O’Sullivan.

Roland Makepeace (Peter Kowitz) knows what makes people happy. Why wouldn't he? He's an eminent professor of psychology who has devoted his life to scientifically investigating human well-being. But his theories are sorely tested when his wife Hanna (Anne Tenney) meets an old suitor Sam (Mark Lee) and his daughter Zelda (Erica Lovell) threatens to go right off the rails. This sharply observed comedy suggests that theory can sometimes fall well short of reality and that finding happiness is easier said than done.

It’s very funny – you’ll laugh and laugh – but you’ll also empathise with the characters. What I love is the irony of this professor of happiness surrounded by unhappiness when he’s done everything right.

Only David can bring us this kind of irony.
